Some of you would have seen the new look of your gmail inbox. I am also one of them. At the onset, it seems useful. This is because it is addressing the main pain-point of dealing with email overload. In my case too, the primary overload came from social, promotions.
Recently, I have used the gmail feature of reporting spam, which also lets you send unsubscribe mail to the promotion originator in single click. That was a good feature. I had used the unsubscribe link in most cases. In one case, the promotional mail was not showing the unsubscribe link but this gmail option seem to do some magic underneath and came as a savior.
Now – when I can separate all the promotional mails in a separate tab – it does seem to address one important need.
More as I use it more.
